Plans have been submitted to build a new caravan park on prime beachfront land at Marcoola on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Brisbane-based investment group, Turtle Sands Marcoola, has signed a conditional contract on the 5.5-hectare site, but the multi-million dollar deal is dependent on it being granted a development approval that supports a range of mixed uses.
As well as the caravan park, the investment group wants to build a motel, residential care facility and residential housing on the site.
The caravan park would consist of 57 sites, a two-storey administration building and manager’s quarters as well as amenity blocks.
The Sunshine Coast Daily reports that the land is the last available development site in the Marcoola tourism precinct on the eastern side of David Low Way and is believed to have attracted a $40 million offer that was rejected during the peak of the property boom that preceded the GFC.
North Shore Traders Association spokesman Jay Pashley told the newspaper that the proposal represented the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle in the Marcoola precinct.
He said the proposed caravan park was a ‘cool use’ for the development site’s northern sector and would be a valuable addition.
